WHAT AFFECTS RANGE?

As with gasoline-fueled cars, electric vehicle range can be affected—and maximized—by several factors including but not limited to:*

*Based on full charge. Actual range varies with conditions such as external environment, vehicle use, driving behaviours, vehicle maintenance, lithium-ion battery age and state of health.

AGGRESSIVE DRIVING

Heavy acceleration may have a negative impact on the vehicle’s state of charge, whereas a steady pace can help preserve the range.

CLIMATE

Extremely hot or cold outside temperatures can affect how well a battery can maintain a charge. To help reduce the impact heating and cooling systems have on range, electric vehicles can be preconditioned** ahead of departure while the car is still charging.

 

** Effectiveness of cabin conditioning may be reduced by extreme outside temperatures or when using 120-volt charging

REGENERATIVE BRAKING

The Regenerative Braking System is capable of capturing and reusing more than 90% of the braking energy normally lost during the braking process and recharges the high-voltage battery.

 

Results may vary based on driving habits.
Range and charge time based on manufacturer computer engineering simulations and EPA-estimated range calculation methodology. The charging rate decreases as battery reaches full capacity. Your results may vary based on peak charging times and battery state of charge. Actual range varies with conditions such as external environment, vehicle use, driving behaviours, vehicle maintenance, lithium-ion battery age and state of health.
